I Thought I Was Done With This

I am unprepared for the full onslaught of Trump-is-the-President angst I thought I'd put behind me.  I was used to breathing freely, confident that change was possible.  With control of the Senate, real progress was on the horizon.

I was a happy girl.

I can't believe it took anyone this long to realize that he's not going to get any better, that as the time comes for that-which-is-untenable-for-his-brain-to-comprehend, he will explode or implode and the rest of us will pay the price for a long long time.
*****
Susan Collins was right - he learned the same lesson from his impeachment that he learned every time Daddy bailed him out, or he sued his foes into submission.  There are no consequences when you are Donald J Trump.  
*****
Cabinet members are resigning and leaving us with this mess.  

Invoke the 25th Amendment and then walk away,  if you think that meaningless gesture will do anything to polish your reputation.
*****
I woke TBG up with my whimpering last night.  He patted and rubbed and reassured.  "It's okay.  It's okay..." 
....... even though we both knew that it wasn't anywhere close to okay.
*****
10 years ago tonight I took myself to IHOP for 10 o'clock pancakes.  I paid for dinner for a young couple and her abuela because they were just wonderful to watch, as I sat alone with my book, smiling at the good fortune that was my life.  

12 hours later, I was bleeding on the sidewalk, holding the hand of a blameless little girl whose love of politics and people and me got her killed.  
*****
Tomorrow is not promised, denizens.  Tell those you love all the things you want them to know.  Don't put it off; who knows what tomorrow will bring.

  1. Tuesday was an emotional rollercoaster and it left a second layer of anxiety about our very safety let alone Democracy. I can't imagine how much harder it must be hitting you. I want to believe (so I do) that the little girl is an angel working to affect better things for this country.

    1. I have no doubt that Christina-Taylor Green is at RBG's right hand, holding John Lewis tight, all of them working to right the wrongs of our world. The image helps me keep it together as things go from bad to worse.
      I don't need another week like this for a long long long long time.

    3. Haven't you heard about Mr Calvin's blank ATM card and how other people have benefited from it? I'm Mr Randy Rodriguez. I want to share a blog and forums on how to get a real blank ATM card, i thank Mr Calvin who helped me with an already hacked ATM CARD and I was so poor without funds that I got frustrated. One morning while I was going through some stuff on the internet, I came across different comments of people testifying on how Mr Calvin has helped them from being poor to being rich through this already hacked ATM CARD. I was skeptical if this was true, I decided to contact him to know if he is real. He proved to me beyond all doubts that it was real. So I urgently ordered for my own blank ATM card by Contacting his email and today I'm also testifying about the good work of Mr Calvin. I never believed in it until the card was sent to me, which I am using today Contact the company now and become extremely rich too.

    5. iI’m lauriel from New York, United States. I lost my job a few months back after my divorce with my wife. I tried everything positive to make sure I took good care of my kids but all failed, and I was in debt which makes everything worse. I was kicked out of my home and i had to live with my neighbor after pleading with her to allow me to stay with her for some days while I figured out how to get a home which she agreed to, but no one was willing to help anymore. I bumped into this page from google and I was excited about this, then I contacted the hackersBill Dean. I had just $200, so I pleaded with them to help me because of my condition but they never accepted. I believed in this, so I managed to pawn a few things and got $500. I ordered the $10,000 card and I got my card delivered to me by Ups 4 days later. I never believed my eyes! I was excited and upset as well, I managed to withdraw $2000 on the ATM and $2500 the second day. I went to Walmart and a grocery store and bought a couple of things for $3000. The card got blocked the third day and I contacted them and I was told it's a mistake from my end. I’m so happy, I have started all over again and have a good apartment with my kids you can contact him through is via email (globalatmcardhackingservice@gmail.com)or his whatsap contact (+1 301-887-5071)

  2. Honestly, I have no words for what happened 10 years ago, or yesterday. As a nation, we seem to be heading off the rails. Between the irrationality of QAnon et al. and the recalcitrant legislators who are slow walking votes on Biden's cabinet, it's like sitting in glue. At least it's not snowing here.

  5. I was listening to coverage of this week's events in Washington, D.C. and someone mentioned that it was the 10th anniversary of the shooting of Gabby Giffords. I thought of you and the little girl. I hope you are doing okay today.

  7. Hi, My name is  Elena  Alex, I live in Washington and I just want to share my experience with everyone. I have been hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and I never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day I discovered a hacking guy called Dickson Harry. He is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. Then he told me Yes and that it's a card programmed for random money withdrawals without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and I still had my doubts. Then I gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. One week later I received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $2,500 every day. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far I have been able to withdraw up to $75000 without any stress of being caught. I don’t know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. a blank ATM has really changed my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address (dicksonharryblankatmharckers@gmail.com)And I believe he will also Change your Life.
